Learning through play
We value each child and aim to provide equal opportunity for the development and growth in self-confidence of each child regardless of their race, religion or beliefs.
Our sessions run from 9.15 am to 2.45 pm on Monday, Wednesdays and Thursday, and 9.15 am to 12.15 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays during term time. We maintain a ratio of at least one member of our caring and experienced staff to every eight children, with more staff if there are children under 3 present.
We have a ‘child-centred’ approach to learning, planned around a child’s individual needs and interests and informed by regular observational assessment.
We use the ‘EYFS’ (Early Years Foundation Stage) framework. The EYFS sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five.
Mayflower is Ofsted inspected. The most recent inspection under the criteria for November 2018 rated Mayflower as “outstanding” with many positive comments from the inspector.
